289. Path To Nowhere
A life in shambles, slowly crumbling to pieces on the ground,
The mind screaming from confusion, without making a sound.
Their world spinning backwards, forever round and round,
Without any promise, and no faith, anywhere to be found.
Years of loneliness, in an existence totally out of control,
Slowly falling through time into a deeper and deeper hole.
Many decades of pain and heartbreak, taking a mighty toll,
Left with only half of a life, that was once meant to be whole.
Too late a realization of something that is seriously amiss,
Their hope slowly disappearing into the infinite abyss.
A lifetime of accomplishments, much too easy to dismiss,
With a long history compiled, that has no clear emphasis.
A convoluted mindset lacking in a firm and honorable creed,
One who would rather follow, than be the one who will lead,
The person who has never performed any memorable deed,
This is unquestionably the one who will surely not succeed.
